WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF PREGNANCY?

Updated: Sep 15, 2022



Pregnancy symptoms:

What happens first? Do you know the early signs of pregnancy?

From nausea to tiredness, find out what awaits you. Can you be pregnant?

But you can prove this with a blood pregnancy test. However, you may suspect that you are pregnant based on some premenstrual symptoms. What are the first signs of pregnancy and what are the causes of these symptoms?

Classic pregnancy signs and symptoms The most common early signs and symptoms of pregnancy are:

Missed Period. If you are of childbearing age and it has been a week or more before your expected menstrual cycle, you may be pregnant. However, if you have menstrual irregularity, this symptom can be misleading. ·

Tender and swollen breasts. Your breasts may become tender and painful as a result of changes in your hormones in the early stages of pregnancy. This will subside after a few weeks as your body adjusts to the hormonal changes.

Vomiting and/or nausea. Morning sickness, which can occur at any time of the day or night, usually begins one month after conception. However, some women may experience nausea earlier, and some may not even experience it at all. The cause of nausea during pregnancy is not clear, but your pregnancy hormones are likely causing it.

Frequent urination. You may feel to urinate more often than usual. During pregnancy, the amount of blood in your body increases, which causes your kidneys to work harder.

Tiredness. Fatigue is one of the early symptoms of pregnancy. In early pregnancy, levels of the hormone progesterone rise, which can make you feel sleepy.

Other pregnancy signs and symptoms: Other less obvious pregnancy signs and symptoms in the first trimester include:

Changes in your mood. The flood of hormones in your body during early pregnancy can make you unusually emotional and tearful. Bloating. Hormonal changes in early pregnancy can cause you to feel bloated, similar to how you feel at the start of your period. Spoting like bleeding. Sometimes a small amount of spotting bleeding is one of the first signs of pregnancy. Known as implantation bleeding, this bleeding happens when the fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the uterus (about 10 to 14 days after conception). Implantation bleeding occurs around the menstrual period. However, it may not appear in all women.

· Cramp. Some women experience mild uterine cramps early in pregnancy. · Constipation. Hormonal changes cause your digestive system to slow down, which can cause constipation. · Food aversions. While you are pregnant, you may become more sensitive to certain smells and your sense of taste may change. Like many of the other symptoms of pregnancy, these food choices can be attributed to hormonal changes. - Nasal congestion. Increased hormone levels and blood production can cause the mucous membranes in your nose to swell, dry, and bleed easily. This can cause a stuffy or runny nose.


Are you really pregnant? Unfortunately, many of these signs and symptoms are not specific to pregnancy. Some may indicate that you are sick or that your period is about to begin. Likewise, you can get pregnant without experiencing many of these symptoms. However, if your period is late and you notice some of the above signs or symptoms, take a home pregnancy test or see your healthcare provider. If your home pregnancy test is positive, make an appointment with your doctor. The earlier your pregnancy is detected, the sooner you can start prenatal care for a healthy pregnancy.
